Hello I just wondered how everyone keeps busy and their mind off things whilst waiting between appointments and for results?
my story is I was getting aches in my right breast almost a month ago now, which progressed to me finding 2 dimples in my right breast and then a large lump.
id seen a gp who referred me to the breast clinic another wait) and when I attended my breast clinic appointment the doctor said she could feel 2 lumps and a large mass, my scans were then rearranged for another week because the scanning department was too full so I attended yesterday for my scans.
i have had an untrasound, then set of mammogram images, biopsy in which they had to take 9 samples and leave 2 metal tags on (which I don't know if this is usual procedure?) I then had to have another mammogram to have pictures of the metal tags.
i am now awaiting my results and I have an appointment for next Wednesday.
I am starting to panic and I am trying to stay busy but I keep breaking down in to random fits of tears. I just feel like an emotional mess.
i am trying to prepare myself for them telling me it's cancer, as even though this won't be confirmed until the results are back I got the impression yesterday from all the tests and asking for extra samples that it is cancerous and I really need to prepare.
just don't know what to do with myself or how I can even prepare for this?
id love to hear advice or hear from others in similar situations please
